The defection of former Vice President Atiku Abubabar from the APC to PDP is still having ripple effect.

A chieftain of the APC in Kaduna State, Yaro Makama-Rigachikun, has returned to the PDP.

Rigachikun was a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before defecting to the APC in 2015.

He was received back to the party at a ceremony attended by the interim National Chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi and the Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin.

Speaking during the occasion, Rigachikun said he made a grave mistake by joining the APC in 2015.

According to him, APC has failed Nigerians and so the time has come to “change the change”.

He said he joined the party, thinking it would address the numerous problems confronting Nigerians, regretting that over two years since its assumption of power, Nigerians were plunged into untold hardship.

“The APC has brought much suffering to Nigerians. In Kaduna State, the teachers are crying, local government workers are suffering and traditional institutions are ridiculed.

“The school feeding programme is in comatose, in fact, nothing is working, so we must change the change,” Rigachikun said.

Hundreds of defecting members burnt their brooms, the APC symbol.

The chieftain, said it was over for the APC in Kaduna.

He condemned the sacking of teachers and local government workers, alleging that Governor Nasir El-Rufai is implementing anti-people programmes.

He stated that the governor should start packing his belongings from the Government House, as the people will not vote him again in 2019.
